Our Chiropractic Techniques

We use a number of highly-effective adjusting approaches to help improve spinal biomechanics and reduce nervous system interference. The approach we use is based on our clinical judgment and years of experience.

The primary adjusting techniques we use include:

dr-karen-adjusting-technique

Think of an adjustment as “tuning” a piano, adjusting each string so it produces the perfect tone.

Diversified

After identifying which vertebrae have lost their normal motion or position, a specific manual thrust is applied to free up “stuck” spinal joints. read more»

Impulse

This handheld instrument delivers a carefully measured and directed thrust that is many times faster than is possible by hand, so less force needed. read more»

Decompression

Our specially-equipped table will ever-so-slowly stretch your spine. And then relax it. Stretch. And relax. Excellent for disc cases. read more»

Extremities

While many health problems can be traced to the spine, wrists, elbows, shoulders, knees other joints of the body can be helped. read more»

Foot Levelers

Footlevers offered at Baranof Chiropractic

These are custom shoe inserts that support all three arches in your feet.

Problems in your feet can create compensatory problems in back and neck. These custom orthotics can make a dramatic difference. read more»

Graston

Using these curved stainless steel instruments, we can successfully resolve adhesions and scar tissue, offering a pleasant sense of release. read more»

Myofascial Release

We’ll find tender areas where muscles and connective tissue are producing pain and restricted movement and gently release it. read more»

If you’ve been to a chiropractor before and prefer to be adjusted in a particular way, let Dr. Zamzow know. We want you to relax, enjoy and fully benefit from your chiropractic care.
